Mammography van back in Lake Cowichan April 27-28

It’s time to book your mammography examination at the mobile unit.

The mobile screening mammography van is returning to Lake Cowichan April 27 and 28.

It offers the same digital mammogram as women can get in the hospital, but with the added convenience of going to a mobile clinic right in their community.

It will be parked at Saywell Park in downtown Lake Cowichan but it’s not a drop-in service. They need to schedule when people are coming. So, women aged 40 and over can book a free examination by calling 1-800-663-9203.
